It’s important to you to give back to the music and share the values and authentic qualities that are such an important part of your life. Whether you’re passing it along to a new generation or supporting the music’s public performance or academic study, the Foundation can provide an appropriate structure to allow you to do just that.

BluegrassCreated in 2007, the Foundation for Bluegrass Music is a non-profit charitable organization (501c3) created to serve as an “umbrella” under which funds can be placed and disbursed to support educational, literary, artistic and historic preservation activities of public benefit.

Donations may be designated to create or sustain a particular program or may be unrestricted. And by combining it with the gifts of others, the legacy of the music and your contribution grows and takes on even greater importance. For example, thanks to one recent leadership gift, important programs to expose young people around the world to the music are benefitting and have a more sustainable future while providing important tax advantages to donors.

At the 20-year mark, Blue Highway is indisputably one of the most esteemed and influential groups in contemporary bluegrass. The band's nine exceptional albums and compelling live performances give proof to the stellar reviews, Grammy nominations, and numerous awards earned by the band since it first took the stage on December 31, 1994, with the same musicians that comprise Blue Highway today.

With a deep bench of virtuosic songwriters, vocalists and instrumentalists, Blue Highway's hallmark is an unwavering commitment to the ensemble, the “democracy of the band” that makes Blue Highway a powerhouse.
